Membership cards required at West Brom on Saturday

Last updated : 11 February 2004 By Michael Morris
West Midlands police and West Bromwich Albion are insisting that membership cards will be checked. Cardiff City stewards and staff will be involved along with local officials in making sure all fans have their cards.

Cardiff City also risk having away capacity's reduced if there are problems with supporters not talking their allocated seats.

Speaking to the official website Stadium Manager Wayne Nash said

“It is vital that all our fans bring their membership cards with them to assist in their smooth entry into the stadium. Persons who are not Season Ticket holders or Members should not attempt to gain entry and fans should not transfer any tickets purchased as they will be in breach of the membership scheme and the Club will take disciplinary action against them. Any persons with tickets who cannot attend or are not Members should return them to the Ticket Office for a refund. These tickets will then be offered to Season Ticket holders and Members who are already on a reserve list".

Cardiff City could see it's away allocations reduced by upto 20% if fans do not use their allocated seats. With the full 2,200 allocation for the West Brom game sold out there will be a need for supporters to arrive early, choose their correct seats and make it a successful day out. Failure to do so will result in the WBA allocation next time we play them reduced by over 400 seats and it will affect allocations at other away matches.
